  • Sister Talk
    • Sister Talk promotes and enhances self-efficacy, self-awareness, and self-advocacy, among other protective factors for Black women at UNC.  
  • Sister Talk After Dark
    • This group, like Sister Talk, aims to increase a sense of belonging and resiliency, as they exist at an intersection of gender and race which impact their experiences at a predominantly white institution (PWI). This group is the graduate and professional counterpart to Sister Talk.
  • P.E.A.C.E.
    • (Processing Emotions And Communicating Effectively) This affinity group was born out of a need for students’ feelings, voices and stories to be shared while identifying mental health resources in a safe, non-judgmental setting. The program aims to bridge the gap between Black students and Mental Health resources by hosting events that teach students how to reconcile past traumas and develop healthy coping mechanisms while moving forward.
  • R.E.A.L. Talk
    • (Resiliency, Education, And Leadership) Provides a space for BIPOC (Black/Indigenous People of Color) and male-identified individuals on UNC’s campus to engage and develop their sense of belonging, personal agency, growth mindset, and tools for honing resiliency and grit.
